More about my personality…
I am fascinated by personality typing. Because of this, and because clients have asked me about “my type” throughout the years, I have taken quite a few personality tests. I started with Myers Briggs back in the corporate world, then DISC when I coached within the Anthony Robbins coaching system before becoming a VA. Some are very insightful, so in case they are ‘your thing’ I thought I would gather them all together for you here.
